    Thanks a bunch!!!! Now as to my second question- How do I set the timing right on the used engine I had put in? Right now he engine runs rough and then dies out.. THae little gas that I had in it is gone and and before I can try again I got to get some more gas in it providing I have no trojuble wtih the fuel door. I will go down and see if I can find that cable you are talking aboujt.

IF U LOOK UNDER THE TRIM PANEL ON THE INSIDE OF THE TRUCK BEHIND WHERE THE FUEL DOOR IS YOU WILL FIND A TINY CABLE WITH A PLASTIC PADDLE HANDLE, THIS IS THE EMERGENCY FUEL DOOR RELEASE WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS, IF THIS DOESN'T OPEN THE DOOR U MUST DO WHATEVER IS REQUIRED TO GET THE DOOR OPEN, THERE IS NO MAGIC FIX, SORRY.

My 95 Pathfinder has sat idle for a couple months and now it won't start.


letting a vehicle sit idle for months is not good !!! now you need to do some work, so get out your check book ! replace both air & fuel filters, replace spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap & rotor, add fresh fuel & fuel injector cleaner to tank @ same time. why are you going from accessory to run, that doesn't make any sense, stop it, please ! now get to work, good luck !

My truck has been sitting in a garage for 7 years and want stay running


The very first thing you do is get rid of the gas in the tank. When petrol sits for a year or more, varnish develops in the tank and lines. Once you do that, add a fuel additive for cleaning out a varnished fuel system. Ask your local Auto Zone or whomever you go to, I would then check that you have fuel pressure to the fuel system by removing a line and having someone crank it for you. If no fuel pressure, the fuel pump has been glued by varnish. If you do have fuel pressure, then you should check the distibutor cap on the inside to free any corrosion on the contacts. Make sure the spark plugs are good, and if not change them. Hope this helps.

Hi I am working on a 1991 nissan pathfinder and it is not getting any gas. I put a new fuel pump and a new fuel filter and changed the fuel pump relay, But still no gas. you can hear the pump kick on. and...


Disconnect ( or at least loosen) the fuel line as close to the engine fuel delivery system as you can and see if there is fuel pressure. You may have a vapour lock. If you do get pressure how much ? Is it sufficient to supply your requirements. A "new fuel pump" does not always mean a "good fuel pump" - from experience!!! If you do not have fuel at the engine work back to each fuel line connection to were there is fuel pressure if at all. I am not a Nissan expert but the principles are the same for all. You do not say if it is fuel injected or carburated. FI requires higher pressures than carbs. Hope this helps. Let me know how you do in your efforts. Thanks Good luck.

1991 Nissan PathFinder will not start. The battery is fully charged.


Check for spark. Pull a plug and ground it DO NOT HOLD IT WITH YOUR HAND. Then have someone turn the motor over as you watch.

Assuming that's good, check the fuel system. It could be a clogged filter, a stuck (float bowl) needle valve in the carburetor, bad fuel pump, or water in the tank/carb.

My 91bmw 735 misfires in low rpm and when i push gas peddal it struggles first and then picks up power,its been sitting for 5months with not too much gas in the tank,whats the problem in your oppinion?


drop the gas tank and get it cleaned out, also replace the screen on the fuel pump, your gas tank is full of debris and its restricting the fuel pump from picking up the gas. also, dont buy **** gas, those higher performance cars run better and last longer if you use 91 octane or better, it just burns cleaner.
